Never become an expert

This was my closing slide from the talk I gave at Geek Night last night.

It really got people talking.

Someone even mentioned it in the same breath as Sir Ken Robinson!

It's something I've been banging on about for years.

I really do hate it when people call themselves experts.

Here's the spiel that went along with the slide:

As soon as you become an expert you know it all.

And if you know it all you can’t make mistakes.

And if you don’t make mistakes then you won’t create anything interesting.
